Dyckman Farmhouse

In my previous post I mentioned the Dyckman Farmhouse. Their website states:

dyckman farmhouse: "The Dyckman Farmhouse Museum is a visual treat for everyone who looks up and sees it perched above Broadway at 204th Street. The Dutch Colonial style farmhouse was built on this site by William Dyckman c. 1784 and was originally part of several hundred acres of farmland owned by the family. Today, nestled in a small park, the farmhouse is an extraordinary reminder of early Manhattan and an important part of its diverse Inwood neighborhood."

It was build in 1784, well after the Dutch colonial time, so the Dyckman Farmhouse is not really a "Dutch Colonial farmhouse", as the Charlotte Observer states, but a Dutch Colonial style farmhouse.

William Dyckman's grandfather Jan Dyckman came from Westphalia (now Germany) a century earlier. The Dyckman family tree is also on the website.

Judging from their website, it seems well worth a visit if you have Dutch colonial roots.
